A medium-bodied, nicely balanced Italian red wine with aromas of sun-dried tomato and dry cherry. Racy acidity is perfect for tangy dishes, especially pasta in tomato sauce.

|Sylvain Segard rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Bright medium ruby. Aromas of red cherries, herbs, balsamic honey, and vanilla. Full bodied, extra dry, round mature tannins, and intense juicy acidity. Silky mouthfeel of ripe berries. Would pair well with spaghetti and meat sauce, tomato sauce pizza, or mushroom risotto. Score 89. (S.Segard, Reviewed Jan. 15, 2017)

Aromas of raspberry, warm spices, cherries, oak and vanilla. On the palate, an explosion of jammy red cooked berries, dry, with a long, lingering finish. Full bodied with just the right amount of acidity and tannins. Serve with tomato pasta/meat dishes, pizza..

Luscious aromas of ripe plum, dark cherry preserves, cinnamon and vanilla. Full-bodied with dark fruit flavours and earthy undertones. Pair with veal or tomato pasta. Tasted January 15, 2017.
|Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:|
Major smoke, spice (cinnamon), and stewed fruit aromas hit you upfront. The palate is smooth with dominant earthy underbrush, baking spice, tobacco leaf, and dried fig flavours. Acidity is high (which I welcome) but lacks balance and structure. It's an amazing wine with salty dishes, though. Enjoy this Ripasso with pesto, parmesan, and prosciutto pizza.

|Melanie Aubert rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:|
Ripasso is generally a safe bet for pizzas and pastas. This one has lots of red fruit, baking spice, dried fruit, herbaceousness, smoke and a bit of gaminess that would lend itself well to roast meats.
|Sharon Aubie rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:|

|What a great value on this Italian Valpolicella Ripasso from the Veneto wine growing region. Bolla has been instrumental in promoting and in benchmarking Veneto wines. Classico Superiore (2014) is a great show of this with its complex and layered rich, red plum and berry fruit and dried fruit flavours. Pair with your favourite veal Parmigiano dish. - Community Wine Reviews|
